The press reports that a Raving Mad Ravi had disrupted prayers at the Jamae Chulia mosque. Police reports confirm this. What is intriguing is that another crazy, Can’t-stop-Yapping UncleYap had on hearing of his arrest, announced that Ravi was arrested for disrupting a religious ceremony at a Hindu Temple Sir Marianman.
Crazy people say the darndest things don’t they? I can hear the sound of a palm slapping the forehead of a betrayed Ravi. He exclaims: ” why oh why did you have to mention the Temple ?!!?”.
It seems Ravi is a serial congregation abuser. Looks like he will be returing to IMH soon … and he will want to bring his friend-in-need-is-a-friend-in-deed Yap.

SINGAPORE : Singapore lawyer M Ravi was charged in court on Monday for disturbing a religious assembly.
The lawyer, who has represented the Singapore Democratic Party in previous civil cases, was allegedly disrupting evening prayers at the Jamae Chulia mosque on August 3 at about 7.30pm.
He is said to have been shouting and interrupting the religious proceeding and when approached by devotees, is alleged to have verbally abused them.
According to the police, this is not the first time the lawyer has behaved this way.
They said he is known to have behaved violently and abusively at places of worship, shops, the Subordinate Courts, and other public areas.
Bail has been set at S$8,000.
Police say behaviour that undermines racial and religious harmony will not be tolerated, especially when the provocative act takes place in a place of worship while prayers are being conducted. – CNA/ms
